Dear Friends:
Thanks to you, our recent alumni events have been great successes, and it's been wonderful to see you and be in touch. Thank you so much for your generous support along the way!
NYPIRG continues to drive public attention to the key issues of the day and have a real and positive impact on policy — from environmental protection, to consumer rights, to higher education affordability, to government accountability, and so much more.
Of course, for all of this, the support of our alumni and friends is crucial. Now more than ever, we need your assistance as we grow NYPIRG bigger and better. Please make your vital, tax-deductible contribution today to help us keep fighting and winning.
We'll keep you informed of upcoming events and opportunities to get involved, and I hope to see you soon. Thanks again!
